Publisher's Summary

James S.A. Corey delivers compelling SF that ranks with the best in the field. In Leviathan Wakes, ice miner Jim Holden is making a haul from the rings of Saturn when he and his crew encounter an abandoned ship, the Scopuli. Uncovering a terrifying secret, Jim bears the weight of impending catastrophe. At the same time, a detective has been hired by well-heeled parents to find a missing girl, and the investigator’s search leads him right to the Scopuli.

    "Moderately memorable"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    After only a few months, I don't remember much about this book except how annoying the anachronistic accents were.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was talented, but I just couldn't get over how annoying the accents were. The one exception being the artificial being, which had a great voice.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    This would fit very well into the terrible SyFy movie genre.

    "Good story, terrible narration."

    If I were to read the story myself or had it been narrated better I would have enjoyed it much more and maybe even want to continue the series. But Jefferson Mays' performance is lacking. The monotonous and droning tempo of his reading made what should have been an exciting story drag on far too long. His characters all sound the same and they never seem to get excited. He sounded bored while reading and thus I was bored listening.

    "Sorry Jeff"
    Any additional comments?

    Heard really good things about Leviathan Wakes, but will probably have to pick up a hardcopy/ebook. The reader is pretty expressionless and not a good fit for tech-heavy sci-fi, I kept losing track of the reading and resetting the audio by a few minutes to catch what I missed but it just faded into background noise again. Got about an hour in before giving up, couldn't tell you what happened during that time.

    "Not for me."

    Found the story lacking. In world building. In character development. I was expecting the story to be much grander. A space Odyssey. Instead I found a very predicable boring drudge to the last page.

    "Nice listen "

    Wife stopped listening in the first half hour. Swearing, toilet humour and the mention of a hand job. It did clean up after a bit though. Really wish Audible had a profanity guage.

    "Absolutely spectacular!"

    Everything science fiction should be. Gripping story, excellent characters and relationships. Vivid writing and captivating narration. Starting book 2 immediately.

    "loved this book"

    I am not going to try to figure out why but I loved this book. I think it took until the middle of the 2nd chapter when I found that I did not want to turn it off. I looked forward to getting back to the story. I kept trying to think of things to do that would not interfere with listening to this book. I am thrilled this is a series, I can't wait to start the next book.

    "Give it time to unfold"

    This is not an easily explained tale. No quick blurb will do it justice. It is, unquestionably, one of the finest pieces of Sci-fi put out in recent memory. Buy this one, even if it costs you full price.

    "Good Story - Moderate Performance"

    The story was a fun exploration of human life beyond Earth & was written well enough to get me hooked for the next book in the series!
